    I've looked at literally thousands over the past few weeks, but don't remember seeing any that are 80+% white. You probably saw the one on the gallery that is 70% white (link below), and I have a few that are 60% white as well.

    This is one of the 60% white that is one of my personal favorites. I like the slight amount of brown mixed in with it.

    Kind of surprising actually now that I think about it that there isn't one with 80% of white. It probably would be a good looking stock. I might think about an 80% white, 10% medium brown, 10% black. I think the brown & black would give it some depth, and really make it look pretty sharp. You might even think about requesting they tigerstripe it, which just means they don't mix/stir the colors as much as they typically do on marble stocks.

    I will keep an eye out for one though, now that you mention it. If I find one, I'll be sure to try to get permission from the owner to add it to the gallery. Sorry I couldn't be more help.

    The one I saw is a manners and not marbled. Page 232 of classifieds under APS 338 edge prob on page 233 now. Anyway it is a painted stock I believe and it it 96%+ white and rugke us cerakoted white as well. I haven't seen to many that are mostly white except Bell and Carlson. IMO I think it would be pretty sharp 80% white. Hope yes find what you linking for. Or just go for it and be the first one.

    I'm leaning toward 85% White, 10% Black, 5% Med Tan. I find it hard to believe there are no stocks at least in 80% White not out there.
